CONTEXT: In tribute to the memory of Joaquín Albarrán in the centenary of his death, we review his biography, comment his work and highlight his urological activity as one of the most important persons of international Urology. The literature on his person and texts has been reviewed. EVIDENCE SYNTHESIS: Born in Cuba, he studied Medicine in Barcelona, graduating with an outstanding level 1877. He went to Paris to extend his studies where he settled and began an extraordinary professional career that led him to be a Professor of the Urinary Tract in the Parisian University and Chief of the Urology Clinic in the Hospital Necker, a pioneer center of specialization that was attended by many physicians from all nations world. He wrote five books on urology disease, of great importance in the literature on the specialty. These books are currently classics and still maintain their validity due to the profound anatomy-clinical and pathophysiological knowledge explained and the extraordinary description of the urinary tract operation techniques. CONCLUSIONS: An eminent urologist, not only because of the importance of his word but also due to design of the nail that carries his name as well as different urological eponyms, his human stature, his category as an investigator and his scientific excellence. Because of presence in Paris, the most important Spanish urologists were prepared at his side, this contributing to the rebirth and boom of the Urology in Spain.
